How To: Dissect a human to see the superficial layers of skin

Dissect a human to see the superficial layers of skin

Before you start dissecting the body of a human being, there are a few things you should probably learn first. This anatomical look at the human body will give you just what you need to delve into your human dissection. Just watch this video tutorial on a few bony landmarks you should be aware of by palpating, like the clavicles, the sternum and sternal notch, the rib cage, and the pelvic region.

Once you got that down, it's time to palpate on a real corpse. After that, it's time for the incision. You'll see exactly where you need to make your incisions, cutting right on down to the bone.

You'll see layers like the epidermis, the dermis, and the subcutaneous fascia. You'll go through the steps of dissecting the superficial thorax and abdomen, and learn all about the skin and subcutaneous tissue of trunk and upper thigh, not to mention the scrotum. Science doesn't get any better than anatomy.

This is very informative for medical students in need of cadaver dissection instructional videos.
